In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means, "Knowledge of Life." This is one of the world's oldest, holistic healing systems. It was developed more than 5000 years ago in India. Ayurveda is often referred to as the "Mother of all Healing," as the mind & body are all interconnected.
Ayurveda is a system of holistic healing unlike any other. Ayurvedic medicine teaches us to see the world as it relates to the Doshas. The Doshas are: Pitta, Vata & Kapha. Everyone is born with a mixture of all three Doshas. Determining your primary Dosha is the first step to finding balance within. Trained & certified Ayurveda Specialists can determine your individual constitution & elements.
